Before I start listing these off, I want to clarify that this has nothing to do with you. Perhaps you did a few of these things, but I was the only one that treated us like an actual relationship and these are the things that I miss from being in one. It has been 3 and 1/2 years since my last official relationship. 3 1/2 years since I was able to say I had a boyfriend.
-I miss the “good morning” and “goodnight” texts.
-I miss the jacket offered to me whenever I was cold.
-I miss always having a person to do things with, and that they wanted to spend time with me.
-I miss kissing. Hello kisses, goodbye kisses, the in between kisses.
-I miss the random surprises. Not necessarily gifts, but the random times I would get flowers, or find a rose on my car, or a massage without me asking for one, or food brought/cooked for me etc.
-I miss laying in bed and having someone to hold on to.
-I miss someone thinking about me and doing things for me, rather than it always being the other way around.
It’s funny. As I list these things, it seems like a corny romance film. I think a huge part of me is so jaded, that I don’t even believe any of this crap exists. I remember having it at one point, but that was so long ago. It doesn’t seem possible to ever have that again. Like a fantasy of love and relationships that will never exist for me again.
